Considering purchasing a high mileage (200k) '87 528e for a daily commuter. The body is straight, the interior is clean, undercoated, manual shift, engine clean, no apparent leaks. Present Owner is getting divorced. I can get it for about $800.
The last BMW I had was a '67 1600 back in the late 70's.
Can any 528e owners out there let me know it's merits and curses. Also, as I am new to this board, where is the best place for me to start the learning curve on this baby.
I have been in Volvo land for several years now. I have 2 240's and get great support from The Brickboard I hope this place is as useful.
Make sure it has been well maintained and have a good mechanic check it.
the weak links for the E28 chassis are the front control arms. Also make sure that the car does not overheat and there are no oil leaks. The a/c system is another weak spot on these cars.
heh, i dunno my AC is like BLASTING. I mean i can freeze to death in that car. But I would just check for some normal stuff.. if it has all the tools in the trunk's drop down thingamajig thats always a plus. also always remember about kelly blue book to check up on ur car
